Cops and Robbers IoT

Once again, my friends at Avaya have done really cool things with my IoT software! Advertisements

The Internet of Things Comes to Legoland

Avaya has been very busy creating Breeze workflows with my IoT software and the most engaging uses of my work can be found in their Lego Smart City.   It’s impressive how little blocks of plastic can be so successful at presenting IoT in ways that everyone can relate to. Here are two videos that demonstrate […]

Visualizing The Internet of Things

It’s important to know one’s limitations.  For example, I consider myself a pretty good computer programmer.  I love problem solving and turning abstract concepts into lines of code.  Over the years, I have written everything from SIP-based communication services to hard disk interrupt processors. However, I am not good at writing software that people can […]

Building SMS Text Bots is a Breeze

As a nerdy guy, I love movies about other nerdy guys.  Give me movies like “A Beautiful Mind,” “The Theory of Everything,” or “Einstein and Eddington” (two nerdy scientists for the price of one), and I am in geek heaven.  Recently, I was thrilled by “The Imitation Game” — the story of Alan Turing and […]

Dragging and Dropping Your Way to IoT Greatness

Do you have a great idea for an IoT application, but don’t know the first thing about programming and have no interest in learning a programming language?  The Avaya Breeze and Zang drag-and-drop workflow designer tools allow you to visualize your idea and with a few mouse clicks, go from concept to a powerful, enterprise-grade […]

Optimism Returns to Avaya Engage

While at Avaya Engage last month, I met with Blair Pleasant of Business Communications Strategies to discuss the work I am doing with IoT, ServiceNow, Watson, Avaya Breeze, and Zang.  I really dislike seeing myself on video, but other than a few awkward smiles and some fumbled words, I did okay in our interview.  You […]

Giving voice to IoT

There have been moments in our communications industry when everything suddenly changes.  You can argue that it all began with Alexander Graham Bell’s invention of the telephone in 1876.  Although the road to that first voice call (“Mr. Watson, come here. I want you.”) took many years and involved several prior attempts, within a year […]

Integrating IoT into Avaya Breeze

After many years of uninterrupted blogging, I have been on a bit of a sabbatical these past several weeks.  It’s not as if I didn’t have anything to say.  It’s more that I didn’t have any time to say it.   On top of a grueling travel schedule, I have been spending long days and nights […]

Avaya Breeze — Up Close and Personal

I recently presented a one-hour webinar that walked folks through the basics of creating Avaya Breeze Snap-Ins.  It’s similar to my Introductory and Advanced YouTube videos, but it’s different enough to warrant a look even if you did wade though all ten lessons.  The user questions at the end may be worth the price of […]

Adding JavaScript Functions to Breeze Snap-Ins

Welcome to the fourth in my series of Advanced Breeze videos.  Here, I discuss how to add JavaScript functions to Breeze Snap-Ins.  This is really important stuff to know and not intuitively obvious.  🙂
